BEAT 7: The way of peacemaking - 'Blessed are the peacemakers'
We human beings are fragile creatures. Our desire for safety and security causes us to gravitate towards those who are most like us. We get into a mentality of us versus them, with so much defensive energy. Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
Whatever your story, whatever your struggle, the beatitudes invite us all to a ninefold path of recovery. In them, we hear the whispers of another world, a new way of being human together.
